Update gets error on LO 3.6.0 vs. 3.6.1 conflict on every update
 
I'm running Xubuntu 12.04 with LibreOffice 3.6.1, but apparently now
that Ubuntu has upgraded its LO to 3.6.0, I get errors because that is
not compatible with 3.6.1 and they collide. Since I missed this the
first time it happened, I get errors on every update because of this
conflict.

3.6.1 fixed a number of annoying problems that happened in 3.6.0 and
I'm not willing to give it up.

So, other than backing out of LO 3.6.1, is there a way to get rid of
those errors?

Thanks.

Just to be sure, you've installed LO 3.6.1 from a LO-supplied package
(whether deb or tgz or something else entirely) and this is
conflicting with the LO that came with Ubuntu, which is now 3.6.0?

If so, you should find that if you simply delete the LO that came with
Ubuntu, Ubuntu will stop trying to update it and you'll stop getting
those messages. Precisely how you do that without affecting your 3.6.1
install depends on how you installed it.

More or less what Avi said.

How did you install 3.6.1? Did you get rid of 3.6 first? If so, how?

Hm. I installed 3.6.1 as an update to my previous 3.6.0 install, both
from TDF (before Ubuntu went to 3.6.0).

So I should uninstall all of them and then reinstall just the LO package?

Ick, but it makes sense....

Thanks.

How? Did you download a .deb file and install it, use a tar.gz file,
build the thing from source?

No, you just want to uninstall the one that shipped with Ubuntu, which
is *probably* the only one in apt/dpkg/software-centre, but it's hard
to tell without knowing how you installed the one that came from LO
themselves.

If you go to the software-centre and look for installed LibreOffice
packages, is there only one of each bit (writer, calc, draw etc.), or
two?

I always download the .debs from TDF's main site for LO.

There were two - both the Ubuntu default and the LO version. I
uninstalled everything and reinstalled just the LO debs and everything
looks fine (though I won't know for sure until the next update goes
in...).

It's only a few minutes of work and it's worth the peace that follows.

Thanks.
